LCT3's A KID LIKE JAKE Closes at Claire Tow Theater Today

LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater's world premiere production of A KID LIKE JAKE, a new play by Daniel Pearle, directed by Evan Cabnet, and starring Caroline Aaron, Michelle Beck, Peter Grosz and Carla Gugino, closes tonight at The Claire Tow Theater. A KID LIKE JAKE began previews on Sunday, June 2, ahead of an official opening night on Monday, June 17.

A KID LIKE JAKE is the story of a husband and wife trying to do right by their son. Alex (to be played by Carla Gugino) and her husband, Greg (Peter Grosz), want only the best for their precocious four year old, Jake. When they apply to New York City private schools, part of what makes Jake special - his passion for Cinderella and dress-up - starts to cause concern.

A KID LIKE JAKE has sets by Andromache Chalfant, costumes by Jessica Wegener Shay, lighting by Japhy Weideman and sound by Jill BC DuBoff.

Daniel Pearle's plays include Bel Canto (semi-finalist, O'Neill Playwrights Conference, 2012), Tearin' Up My Heart and Plunder (2008 Loeb Drama Center's Phyllis Anderson Prize). His short play The Truth About Christmas was a winner of the 2011 Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Short Play Festival and is published and licensed by Samuel French. Residencies and conferences include The Blue Mountain Center, New York State Summer Writers Retreat and the UCLA Writers Studio. He earned his BA from Harvard University and recently completed his MFA at The New School for Drama.

Evan Cabnet directed the LCT3 production of All-American . Other credits include the Broadway production of The Performers, Warrior Class (McGinn-Cazale Theatre), Outside People (Vineyard Theater),Dream of the Burning Boy (Roundabout), Oliver Parker!, The Mistakes Madeline Made (Naked Angels), Oohrah!(Atlantic Theater Company). His regional theater credits include productions at the Goodman Theatre, Denver Center, Long Wharf Theater and the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

LCT3 was established in 2008 by Lincoln Center Theater as a programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists as well as developing new audiences. Tickets to all LCT3 productions are $20. Past LCT3 productions include Ayad Ahktar's Disgraced, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and Amy Herzog's 4000 Miles, a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize.

This spring LCT is also presenting Douglas Carter Beane's The Nance, directed by Jack O'Brien, on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre and Richard Nelson's Nikolai and the Others, directed by David Cromer at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
